The Niagara Frontier Orchid Society’s mission is to seek to promote the culture and enjoyment of orchids, and aims to further every member’s orchid related knowledge. They are dedicated to encouraging the protection of orchids and their conservation in natural habitats around the world.
The Science Museum Camera Club will display their latest work during an exhibit entitled, Beautiful Botanicals, in the Arcangel Gallery inside the Botanical Gardens.
